This is an essay about a bare ruin’d choir which, as a subtle alteration in tone of the sonnet in itsin the ninth line suggests, contains all the promise of a glowing fire. This case study will explore how ruins – at the first glance, relics of failed pasts – can be recycled to provoke and provide settings for debates about ther, and our future.
The sonnet ends with an injunction « to love that well, which thou must leave ere long »; and the story that this case study describes is an experiment in caring for the ephemeral and the liminal. This is, therefore, not just an argument about ruins, but about our approach to the built environment as a totality, which is a continuous process of ruination, recycling, and renewal.
